Celery-Split Pea Soup with Ham

celery split pea soup

I’ve always loved split pea soup, esp the bad-for-you canned variety, so I learned to make it myself. Split Pea soup is high in carbs, so I add celery soup to bring down the carb count and increase the fiber count, making it diabetes-friendly!
Make Celery Soup from Simple Healthy Fresh.
Normally when making split pea soup, I will caramelize shallots/green onion, celery, carrots and ham or canadian bacon. Since I added shallots to the celery soup, I just browned some ham in red pepper olive oil, added 1 lb split peas and 16 oz low-sodium chicken stock, brought to a boil then simmered while the celery soup was simmering in another pot.
After 30 minutes of simmering to soften, I blended the celery soup as directed below, then added to the split pea soup in the other pot. Continuing to blend until celery soup pot was empty, I then turned up the heat slightly (from low to medium low), stirring every 30 minutes to prevent burning/sticking until done.
